1987 Haro Team Master
Well here she is, in her full glory!!! I finally finished it up yesterday. I would of had it done earlier but I decided to change up some stuff and use more year specific parts instead. For example, I decided to go with the 87'Nippon front brake and with the original bars. I bought new bars and stripped them and then had them rechromed and the lower half powder coated and put on new decals so the bars are NOS. I bought NOS fork standers as well. I brought the NOS Gyro cables in from England (Alans BMX). Cheaper than waiting for them on E-Bay. I think overall it turned out pretty nice. My old high school buddy hasn't seen it yet but I'm sure he'll dig it. I listed the parts I used below: 1987 Haro Master F/F fully restored W/NOS Forkstanders, YST restored headset w/new bearings, 1987 Haro Handlebars restored to NOS (new chrome, powder, and decals), NOS Ame' Tri Grips, 1664 Front Brake Cable, NOS Gyro upper and lower cables, NOS Dia Compe Tech 77 locking levers, 1987 Dia Compe Nippon restored front brake w/new hanger bolt and pads, NEW Dia Compe 990 rear brake, Haro Group 1 restored stem (new powder), 1" Gyro restored to NOS (new decal and powder), After Market Haro frame and fork decal kit, NOS Peregrine seat post clamp, NOS Peregrine seatpost, NEW Odyssey Mike Aitken Old School retro seat, 20 X 2.0 ACS True Tires, Peregrine HP-48's fully restored (new axles,bearings,spokes,decals), NEW ACS Claw rear 16T Freewheel, NOS Izumi blk/chrome chain, NOS Peregrine 44T Chainwheel, NEW Redline 401 Dual Pinch Sealed 180 Crankset W/NOS Redline Decals, NEW Odyssey Twisted plastic pedals. So I believe that's it. I'm not sure what to do with this bike now. I finished it and thought to myself...so that's it eh? I guess it's done. So now onto my 1987 Sport and then I will give it a rest for awhile.
